Folk and Traditional Arts Events

This summer, join Creative Discovery Museum as we take a cultural journey around the world - no passport required! The Museum will host three Folk and Traditional Arts Events throughout the summer! Through music, dance, art and food, children and their families will experience different cultures presented by local and regional talent. These events provide a wonderful opportunity to introduce children to different cultures represented in our city.

Join us Saturday, August 18 from noon to 4 p.m. for our final event day of the summer which will spotlight traditional and folk wood crafts. Many of the activities will allow children to interact with the artists and encourage participation. 

Don't miss the fun! Activities include, but are not limited to:

  • basket weaving with Bill and Candy Haley 
  • carving and wood turning demonstration

"Chattanooga is a global city with people representing many different cultures from around the world! Our Folk and Traditional Arts Events will celebrate a sample of the different cultural art forms practiced in our city and surrounding areas," said Liza Blair, Arts Manager. “These events also provide authentic, hands-on experiences that demonstrate how art brings all cultures together despite our differences.”

All activities included with admission. For more information or any questions, contact Liza Blair at llb@cdmfun.org or (423) 648-6069. Performances and activities subject to change.
